TinyTask Portable 1.50
Record and playback macros with TinyTask Portable

Back in the early days of Windows, the operating system included a utility called Recorder that could be used to record macros that could be played back at a later time to repeat frequently used keystrokes and mouse movements. Such a macro utility has been missing from more recent releases of Windows, but it can be reinstated using TinyTask Portable.

As the name would suggest, this is a portable app that can be run from a USB drive, making it possible to take your macros with you as you move from one computer to another. The tiny little program can be used to record actions that you perform using your mouse and keyboard. These recordings can be saved as macros that can be played back at any time to save having to repeat the same actions manually.

The ability to save and repeat common tasks using macros is useful in itself, this is enhanced thanks to the fact that macros do not need to be played back at the speed at which they were recorded - actions can be sped up. A particularly useful feature of this portable utility, apart from the ability to use it on any computer without the need for installation, is the fact that recorded macros can be saved as standalone executable files.

There are numerous uses for TinyTask Portable, from creating macros that launch programs, or perform common functions within individual applications, to creating a quick and easy way to enter frequently used sections of text into a variety of programs. However you choose to use the app, it is a great way to save time and effort.

Verdict:

A very simple tool, TinyTask Portable reinvents the humble macro for the modern age.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
